What, an "Almost Puked" trophy?

That would be something to see...

Default AMA is on my S... List

After the way Dingman handled the AMA/AHRMA situation i can hardly look at their logo without getting pissed. He basically f...ed 5000 enthusiasts to cow tow to a rich lawyer. If this is the kind of intestinal fortitude we can expect when dealing with Biker rights, we be in deep doo-doo. I guess I'll get over it but right now IAINTHAPPY!!!!
And wont be until WAY after Mid Ohio,,,,,,,,

After losing millions to Edmunson, can you blame him?

How much credibility did the AMA lose over that mess?

Dingman just manned up and cut the AMA's losses. Ianucci's got lots of disposable income, and a huge ego.

Hooo Boy!

AHRMA and AMA have parted ways. AMA capitulated to the demands of the lawsuit started by Rob Ianucci specifically to bankrupt AHRMA. AMA is now running VD at Mid-Ohio. They are looking for club support for all aspects of competition there.

AHRMA not advertising their next move. VD and Daytona are the two big money-making events for them.

I can't get to the proper forums from my work computer, so do a search for "Vintage Motorcycle Racing Forums" and you'll find lots of discussion.

"The whole helmet law fight cost them a lot of credit,.."

With who? Helmet laws are the stupidest tings ever conceived. Safety isn't worn on your head.

How many helmet laws got overturned? it cost political credit every time we loose a fight. next time around our enemies are emboldened because they beat us once, they figure they can do it again.

It looks like they've come up with some reasonable policies on noise at least so hopefully we can fight these bike bans in some towns. The word seems to be getting out about super loud pipes anyway.
